Sony Bravia XR TVs to have auto HDR tone mapping and auto picture mode selection with PlayStation 5 with an upcoming software update
Sony is introducing a ‘Perfect for PlayStation 5’ campaign for BRAVIA XR TVs, specially designed to work perfectly with the PlayStation 5 (PS5) and offer a fantastic gaming experience with immersive picture and sound.
‘Perfect for PlayStation 5’ TVs will bring in two brand-new PS5 exclusive features – Auto HDR Tone Mapping and Auto Genre Picture Mode. They also support frame rates up to 120fps in a super-crisp 4K resolution as specified in HDMI 2.1 in compatible games. Additionally, with input lag as low as 6.0ms on the Z9J models, you’ll achieve extraordinary smoothness and responsiveness in a first-person shooter, sports, and high-performance games with the instant on-screen action.
Sony’s BRAVIA XR TVs deliver stunningly realistic pictures full of vibrant colors and eye-catching contrast, complemented by unique sound from screen technology that puts you right in the heart of the action whether you’re playing a game or watching a movie.
‘Perfect for PlayStation 5’ BRAVIA XR-exclusive features
Auto HDR Tone Mapping
With Auto HDR Tone Mapping, the HDR settings will be optimized instantly during your PS5 initial setup. The PS5 will automatically recognize individual BRAVIA TV models and select the best HDR setting for the TV accordingly. With the optimized HDR tone mapping level to your BRAVIA display specification, you’ll see crucial details and colors even in high contrast scenes. For instance, you will get the addition of detailed objects on the track in Gran Turismo 7 so you know just how to make your next move.
Auto Genre Picture Mode
BRAVIA XR TVs can detect whether you are playing a game or watching movies and shows. With Auto Genre Picture Mode, your TV automatically switches into Game Mode when gaming, which minimizes input lag to make the action more responsive or to Standard Mode when watching movies via a streaming service or from an Ultra HD Blu-ray disc on the PS5, which shifts focus to picture processing for a more expressive picture.
Auto Genre Picture Mode will be available via future software updates on PS5 and BRAVIA TVs by the end of January 2022.
Elevate your experience with Sony’s sound products
Sony’s BRAVIA XR TVs are an excellent match for an array of Sony’s sound products, such as the HT-A9 Home Theatre System or the HT-A7000 and HT-A5000 soundbars. You can connect the products directly to your PS5 and experience the Auto HDR Tone Mapping and Auto Genre Picture Mode BRAVIA XR-exclusive functions on a BRAVIA XR TV.
